NY Man Accused of Shooting Record Deer on Game Farm

By Chad Love

A New York man who claimed to have shot a giant non-typical whitetail that would have been a new state record is now accused of shooting the buck on a game farm.

From this story in the Corning (NY) Leader:
A northern New York hunter who claimed to have killed a state record buck is not getting a spot in the record books over suspicions that he shot a farm-raised deer. The Watertown Daily Times reports that Wayne N. Long II said he bagged a 22-point deer in the town of Rodman that would qualify for a state record for bucks with “non-typical,” or asymmetrical, antlers under the commonly used Boone and Crockett score. But officials of the company that certifies rack sizes believe he shot the deer on a deer farm, which would make it ineligible.

According to the story, state wildlife officials have issued Long a citation for filing a false report.

HAHA, he clearly doesnt keep up with Field&Stream online or he would know that shooting pen/farm raised deer just gets you in trouble.

Every fall this sort of thing starts. People never cease to amaze me with their desire to be someone they are not.

They don't mention if he killed it illegally (poached) from the game farm or if it was a paid hunt. If it was a paid hunt then it seems like the game farm would have a responsibility to report the deer. This would help defeat the ability to claim it as a record plus it would be great advertisement for them.

It's really a sad time when people do stuff like this.

It's even sadder that they expect to get away with it.

I hate to point out the obvious, but given the random configuration of various "red-neck" stickers, including those awesome Jeff Gordon ones on the taillights, not to mention the van for sale in the background........not exactly the type of photo-op a person capable of taking a mature animal with a bow would go with. That's just my opinion though.

I hate to say it, but I am having a harder and harder time believing anything that I see or hear about deer hunting. Once again the inches of antler are more important then the hunt.

Hey buckhunter. What ever happened to Noel Feather? I'm thinking he's dead isn't he? He was quite a piece of work too.

I can't believe people don't see the hunt being the rush not the animal you take. What an idiot. It's people like him that ruin good conservation and hunting for everyone else.

Take away his privledges and be done with it!
